T.I. says he called out the guard for sleeping on the job and an argument ensued between the two.
In an interview with the Blast after his arrest, T.I. said that he got into a "very heated debate" with the guard, but that there was no physical confrontation. T.I. was taken into custody on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness. No word on whether "BBQ Becky" was the one working security at the gate.
It's not the first time T.I. has run afoul of authorities.
"The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse", Sadow said, using the rapper's nickname. Media reports say the Grammy-winning artist, whose real name is Clifford Harris, had lost his key and the guard wouldn't let him into the community. He says he gave the guard "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused. He also told the publication that he'd been returning home from the recording studio prior to the incident, and alleged that the guard had "antagonized" him. He says the rapper identified himself and sought entry, but the guard refused. The rapper contacted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who confirmed that her husband should be allowed inside the community. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. He then called a friend, but that didn't help the situation, as both men began to argue with the security guard, which led to police officers being called.
According to officials, the unidentified friend had an outstanding warrant and was placed under arrest.
T.I. has since been released.
Since his release, T.I. has addressed the issue in an Instagram livestream while attending his son's classroom birthday celebration in which he referred to the arrest as "nonsense" and "small potatoes."
